    "The teachers and faculty at John Hersey High School is outstanding. Very well qualified staff. Always available either before or after school if not both. Ninety nine percent of them engage with students in hallways and in the communities making the learning environment very pleasant. All teachers know exactly what they are talking about and if a student does not understand a subject they will make extra time to help out that student no matter what the case is. The teachers communicate with the students very well about when homework is due and the curriculum topics. Students across Hersey enjoy the teaching styles of the faculty. From field trips to iPad interactive activities to the standard note taking. Teachers are normally very good about getting grades in on time to update students on how they're doing in class, but like everyone they are human and at times they have things that come up, but they always do everything they can do to get in student grades."

    "At John Hersey we receive one of the best public school educations in the state. That alone would justify my decision on why I would choose John Hersey again. I also was involved with DECA, Varsity Football, and Basketball. DECA is a business club where students get judged on theoretical business situations and how they react. Not all schools offer programs like this and I am very blessed to be able to participate in a club like this. During my senior year of football we didn't end up doing as well as we wanted record wise but my teammates and I made some unforgettable memories. From our overnight camp to Benedictine University to the Friday night lights against our cross town rival Prospect High School. Our fan section was so supportive throughout the game helping us out to get a victory."

    "Most of my teachers truly cared about my grades and my well being, while a few didn't show any care for me and seemed to hate being a teacher."
